My blog is almost eight years old, and I’ve published just under a thousand blog posts in that time. Along the way, I wrote about 100 draft notes that I never published. Sometimes I just didn’t finish the posts. Sometimes I thought they were too boring. Sometimes I wrote a blog post to debunk a misconception, then decided it wasn’t worth tackling that specific topic. A few times, I wrote something snarky about another company and then thought better before hitting submit. And a lot of posts were more like notes I kept as I customized some piece of software.
All those draft blog posts were starting to bug me, so I decided to do some spring cleaning this weekend. A lot of the draft posts I just deleted. I transferred some stuff into personal Google Drive files. I was left with a dozen or so blog posts that mostly fit into the “very boring” and/or “half-finished” category. But I kept thinking that 1-2 people out of the two billion or so people online might actually run across a post and find it helpful.
So I’m going to just throw a few of semi-boring, semi-finished posts onto my blog. Feel free to ignore these.
